THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

Following brief discussion, it was 

VOTED: To authorize the President and Treasurer 
to proceed with expenditure of special 
items in the annual budget upon the sign- 
ing of the Appropriation Bill. 

Trustee Monahan inquired if the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds had considered plans for the young 
stock barn. The Pres5.dent replied that plans have just 
been completed and would be presented later in the meet- 
ing. 

President Baker outlined briefly progress of 
P.?/. A. project for restoration of South College and 
indicated that the State P.W.A. authorities had recorded 
themselves unofficially in favor of the project when 
money is available. The President said that when plans 
for restroation are ready, they would be presented for 
the approval of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds. 
President Baker spoke briefly on the possibility of 
securing further Federal grants as F.W.A. projects for 
the construction of seven other buildings which have 
been asked for. 

Trustee Monahan asked for information regard- 
ing progress on the self -liquidating dormitory. Presi- 
dent Baker said that present plans call for the construc- 
tion of two dormitories, but that one will be built first

that service charges will be paid for by the building 
corporation and the College will assume the management 
and keep the building full. Trustee Whitmore explained 
that the plan is to make the Abbey into a men's dormi- 
tory and the new building a woman's dormitory. Upon 
inquiry as to the probable expense of transforming the 
Abbey to a men's dormitory, President Baker said that in 
his opinion transformation would not be expensive. 

President Baker referred to the item for re- 
pairing and painting of buildings and saia that the 
situation is becoming increasingly serious with more 
buildings on our Campus and less money for their care 
than in 1929. 

The President read a memorandum from Professor 
George L. Farley in which Professor Farley asked to be 
allowed to construct a small dam in the creek on College 
property as a swimming hole for 4-H Club boys and girls. 
Under Professor Farley's plan, the construction of this 
swimming hole would not involve expenditure of money by 
the College. Plans for the dam have been approved by 
Director Munson of the Extension Service and Professor 
Rice of the Division of Agriculture. 

Trustee Monahan inquired if land owners below 
the dam would object. President Baker said that this 
problem had been investigated and owners below the dam 
do not object, furthermore that the brook would not be

secure written releases from owners for at least one-half 

mile below the dam. Following further discussion, it was 

VOTED: To authorize Treasurer Kenney and Professor 
Farley to proceed in the building of a small 
dam on Creek on farm property as a swimming 
hole for 4-H Club boys and girls with the 
further provision that Professor Farley is 
to be responsible for procurement of all 
funds necessary for the carrying out of the 
project and that the project will be 
approved as to health features by a repre- 
sentative of the State Board of Health. 

President Baker presented certain personnel 
matters. He presented recommendation of Dr. Alexander, 
Dr. Gordon and Dean Machmer that Dr. Harvey L. Sweetman, 
Entomologist, be granted leave of six months for pro- 
fessional improvement during the second half of the year 
1838-1939 at full pay. Following discussion, it was 

VOTED ; To approve request for leave of absence of 
Dr. Harvey L. Sweetman of six months for 
professional improvement during the second 
half of the year 1938-1939 at full pay. 

President Baker, as a matter of information, 
stated that leaves of absence without pay for a period of 
one year beginning with the ending of the present period 
of employment have been granted to the following men who 
are proposing to continue graduate work for advanced de- 
grees: V/alter H. Hodge, Instructor in Botany; C. Collis

spirer of youth through education, as a contribu- 
tor to the welfare of his fellow citizens and the 
State through his administrative, scientific and 
extension teaching accomplishments, we, the Board 
of Trustees of Massachusetts State College wish 
to express our regret that the retirement age has 
overtaken him, to salute his many outstanding 
accomplishments in his chosen field, to wish him 
and Mrs. Graham many years of health and happiness 
and to bestow upon him the title of Professor 
Emeritus." 

It was 

VOTED : To adopt the resolution as presented above 
and to carry Professor Graham upon the 
rolls of the Institution as Professor 
Emeritus of Poultry Husbandry.

THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

Dean Machmer entered the meeting at this point 
and explained briefly the plans for modification of fresh- 
man requirements. Reasons given for the modified plan as 
presented were that the plan would facilitate handling 
of laboratory courses and liberalize the curriculum in 
favor of certain divisional and departmental requirements. 
Following further discussion, it was 

VOTED: To authorize changes in the freshman 
curriculum as recommended by vote of 
the Faculty in meeting, May 12, 1958. 



President Baker next introduced a discussion of 
the assignment of the Department of Engineering to a 
Division. He recalled the fact that in January the Board 
voted to place the Department of Engineering in the 
Division of Physical and Biological Sciences. The 
present recommendation as made by the President is to 
attach the Department of Engineering to the Administra- 
tive Division for a two-year period or until its proper 
place Yras determined. 

Upon question from Trustee Monahan, President 
Baker explained that the Divisions of Agriculture and 
Physical and Biological Sciences are in agreement with 
this proposal and that the change would make for greater 
harmony within the College. Engineering, explained 
President Baker, is not normally a part of either of these 
divisions. He explained that if it were a part of the 
Division of Agriculture, it would probably be difficult 
to place graduates of the Engineering Department. Follow-

ing further discussion, and a proposal to make the 

time limit more elastic, it was 

VOTED ; To authorize the President to administer 

the recently created Department of Engineer- 
ing as a separate Department attached to 
the Administrative Division for a period 
not to exceed two years, during which time 
effort will be made to determine the ulti- 
mate disposition of this department in the 
Administrative set-up of the College. 

This vote amends action of the Board taken at 
the January 1938 meeting, at which time the Department 
of Engineering was created. 

President Baker briefly reported on askings to 
be included in the Supplementary Budget and presented 
two letters to the Director of the Budget and including 
askings of the present year. Items requested were as 
follows: 



1. Painting Buildings at the College . 

2. Incinerator and Necessary Housing . 

3. Repairing and Repainting French Hall

4. Oiling Campus Roads and Drives

THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

President Baker next reported briefly on plans 
for the Sixty-Eighth Commencement Exercises and invited 
all members of the Board for Monday, June 13, at 10:30 
A.M. 

Next was presented a proposal by the town of 
Amherst with reference to construction of a sewage dis- 
posal plant on a certain portion of the farm property of 
the College. President Baker reviewed the position of 
the town in this matter, stated that the town set a con- 
tribution of $9,200 from the College and two acres in the 
south west corner of the farm property as the College T s 
part of participation in this project. It was pointed 
out that special legislation is required. 

President Baker stated that he had investigated 
the sanitary implication of the move and reported that 
engineers, including three members of the College Faculty, 
state that there would be no objectionable odors from 
this plant in this location. It was pointed out that the 
Board of Trustees does not have the power directly to 
grant this land to the town and that special legislative 
action would be necessary. 

Trustee Malcolm opposed the move saying that 
in his opinion the plant in this location would prove 
objectionable. 

Following lengthy discussion of the merits of 

the matter, Trustee Buttrick pointed out that the Board 

will have another chance to consider the matter later and 
moved adoption of the report of progress presented by the

Trustee President, and it was 

VOTED: To accept the report of the President as

as being in sympathy with cooperation with 
local authorities in the matter. 

Trustee Malcolm inquired concerning the 
$9,200 item for which the town is asking as the College 
participation in the project. President Baker said that 
this matter might be taken up next year. 

Professor Markuson and Mr. Parsons entered at 

this point and presented completed plans for the young 

stock barn as approved by Professor Rice. Professor 

Markuson outlined the plans in detail, showed the new 

arrangements for the hay barn which is planned to 

eliminate the fire hazards, and other details. Upon 

recommendation by the President, it was 

VOTED: To accept the plans for the young stock 
barn as presented by Professor Markuson. 

Trustee Buttrick introduced the question of 
the A.B. degree, saying that he did so at the insistance 
of the Alumni Directors who have taken an active interest 
in the matter. He referred to the minutes of the 
January meeting at which meeting the matter was laid on 
the table until the September meeting of the Board. He 
moved unanimous consent to bring the matter before the 
Board at this time. 

Trustee Griggs objected, however, saying that 
new members of the Board had not had time to familiarize 
themselves with the matter. Trustee Buttrick suggested 
that the matter be brought up at June and included in the

Upon inquiry, President Baker said that he

funas appropriated for Extension Service. The Presi- 
dent also read to the Trustees a letter from Mr.

changed over to an appropriation "basis. The President 

recommended that the "bill be reintroduced omitting the 

Dining flail enterprise from its provisions. Following 

discussion, it was 

VOTKD: To reintroduce the bill regarding 

authority of the Trustees over Trust

The activity of the Associate Alumni in 
sponsoring a project for the construction of dormitories 
at the College on a self -liquidating basis was ex- 
plained by the President. The Alumni introduced a bill 
to the Legislature last year to provide for such a 
project and this bill was given "next annual session." 
The Alumni are interested in continuing their efforts 
in this matter and have asiced for the cooperation of 
the Trustees and the College administration in a joint 
effort to secure the passage of necessary legislation. 
It was explained to the Trustees that similar projects 
to that proposed by the Alumni have been successfully 
carried on in twenty-two states, that it means the pro- 
vision of very much needed dormitory accommodations 
without the expenditure of State appropriations and 
without direct financial responsibility on the part of

Alumni Committee in the promotion 
of this project.

the Chairman appointed the Legislative Committee of 
the Board to serve in this capacity - Trustees Griggs, 
Bar tie tt and Cassidy. 

The present rate of boara at the College 
Dining Hail, which is $6.50 per week appears to be 
higher than is necessary for the maintenance of this 
enterprise on an entirely self-supporting basis. The 
President recommended that the Board authorize a re- 
duction in this rate provided accounts indicate, when 
finally balanced, that a lower rate would still main- 
tain the department on a self-sustaining basis. In 
accordance with his recommendation, it was 

VOTED: To authorize the President ana Treasurer 
to reduce the rate of board at the 
Dining Hail if and when it is evident 
that such reduction can be made with- 
out reducing income below cost.

ment at the College, he suggested trie possibility of 
maintaining a smaller institution with strict limita- 
tion of enrollment and high scnoiastic standards as 
contrasted with a larger institution with possibly 
lower standards. The advisability of a stuuy of tnis 
problem by a group of educators not connected witn tae

functions performed by the College ana the difficulty 
in allocating exact proportionate costs, no figure can

Representatives of the State Auditors' Office

Yours respectfully, 

/s/ Robert D. Hawley 
Secretary 

The minutes of the preceding meeting were 
approved without reading. 

President Ba&er reported the registration of 
students for the current year. The total enrollment in 
the undergraduate College is 1205 which compares with 
an enrollment of 1148 last year. It is expected that 
enrollment in the Stockbridge School ana Graduate 
School will bring the total of full time student en- 
rollment for the year to approximately 1700 as com- 
pared with 1614 last year. This is the largest enroll- 
ment in the history of tne College. 

The President presented a report upon the pro- 
gram of Student Aid for the current year indicating 
changes in the administration of N£A employment. Our 
College will receive from the National Youth Administra 
tion a cuota of §20,905 for the academic year. This 
amount is based upon a figure equal to ten per cent of 
our enrollment of October, 1958, multiplied by $15.00 
for average individual earnings for one month. Our 
total allotment for 1956-37 was 815,255 based upon 
eight per cent of enrollment ana for 1938-39 our 
allotment was .$17,685 basea upon 9.3$ of our enroll- 
ment. It will be noted that our allotment for the

THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

current year is the greatest up to date. 

The National Youth Administration has modified 
its regulations requiring a minimum earning of $10,00 
per month. In the past there was no such regulation. 
In the administration of this fund, we formerly deemed 
it desirable to lower earnings per student so that more 
students might be given aid. For the current academic 
year, we will not be able to give aid to as many stu- 
dents as in the past, though, of course, the average aid 
per student will be increased. 

Up to the present time, 405 men and 175 women, 
a total of 580, have applied for aid. We have assigned 
248 men and 82 women, a total of 528, to our employment 
program. These figures include not only the NYA Pro- 
gram, but assignments unaer our Special State Appropria- 
tion of $5,000 for Student Aid and our regular depart- 
mental funds. 

It is apparent from these figures that we 
have on our waiting list 252 students who are in need of 
aid. In view of the fact that our Special State Appro- 
priation has not been increased with our enrollment 
growth, ¥v r e are not able to solve our student aid problem 
as effectively as we did a fe?j years ago. 

The President also presented a financial reporjt Hurricane 

Repairs 
and a statement of improvements accomplished under the 

special hurricane and storm damage appropriation of 

$55,000.

The Treasurer presented a brief financial re- 
port. Appropriation of State Funds for Maintenance for 
the current year are $5,020 less than last year. 
Personnel costs are substantially larger this year due t(o 
the step salary increases of a year ago so that the 
College is facing a very difficult financial situation 
in closing its current fiscal year. The President 
assured the Trustees, however, that whatever economies 
may be required will be made in order that our accounts 
will be balanced without a deficit. 

The President presented to the Board the 
recommendation of the Dean and the Faculty Committee on 
Scholarship that certain students wno nave completed 
all required work for graduation since Commencement 
last June and who are eager to secure their diplomas to 
make possible continuation of their educational pro- 
grams be granted diplomas ana the Bachelor of Science 
degree. Upon the recommendation of the President, it

Consideration was given to the matter of the 
petition of the Trustees of the Lotta Crabtree Estate 
to the Probate Court for an interpretation of the terms 
of the Crabtree Will as it applies to the Lotta Agri- 
cultural Fund of which State College graduates ana stu- 
dents are beneficiaries. Upon trie request of the 
Trustees of the Crabtree Estate, this Board of Trustees, 
as respondent, had filed answer to their petition 
supporting their argument for an interpretation of the 
will which would permit loans to graduates of trie 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture. The Board of 
Directors of the associate Alumni of the College have 
objected to the answer of the Trustees and requested a 
hearing. It was pointed out that the Trustees had 
filed their answer with some misunderstanding as to the 
amount of money available and the demand for it by 
graduates of the College. 

At this point, the Trustees invited repre- 
sentatives of the Associate Alumni and the Stockbridge 
School Alumni Association to appear for hearing. 
Mr. Davis and Mr. Crowley appeared for the Associate 
Alumni of the College and Mr. Hawes and three others 
appeared for the Stockbridge School Alumni Association. 
Mr. Davis made an introductory statement and Mr. Crowley 
presented a brief setting forth the arguments of the

describing the training provided through the Stockbriage 
School and the activities of its graduates. He urged 
that the Trustees do not change their answer to the 
petition. Following discussion with questions and 
answers between the three groups represented, trie Alumni 
were excused. 

In the discussion which followed, the need for 

immediate action was emphasized ana upon motion by

To the Trustees 
Massachusetts State College 

In accordance with the written request 

of the members of the Trustee Committee on 
Finance and pursuant to the provisions of the 
By-Laws, a special meeting of the Board of 
Trustees of the Massachusetts State College is 
hereby called to convene at the City Club in 
Boston at 12: SO P.M. on Wednesday, December 13, 
1939. The purpose of this meeting will be to 
consider and act upon the recommendation of the 
President of the College as to the reorganization 
of the Business Office and to consider such other 
matters pertaining to the College as he may 
present. This will be a luncheon meeting. 



Yours respectfully,

President Faker announced that the College hod 



closed its fiscal vpar on November 20 with 



a small 



balance. The Secretary presented a more dete lied 
financial report indicating that while accounts are not 
completely summarized for the year, it Is apparent that 
out of a State appropriation for Maintenance of 
11,123,360.44, there remained a balance at the close of 



[

the year of approximately 13,000.00. The cost for Per- 
sonal Service exceeded the appropriation by the amount 
of approximately |9,000.0Q while the cost of supplies, 
Equipment and Travel was less than the appropriation 
by approximately $12,000.00. Probably the most signi- 
ficant aspect of the situation is the marked inadecuacy 
of the appropriation for Personal Service. Even though 
the normal step rate increases were not granted this 
year to members of the staff of the grade of Assistant 
Professor or above, there was still a substantial short- 
age in this account. 

Dr. Hubbard raised a question as to the joint 
action of the Committees on Finance &nd Executive in 
approving the discontinuance of the Summer School in 
1940 'and asked whether this action would come to the 
full Board for consideration. President Baker replied 
that the mstter would be referred to the full Board at 
the annual meeting in January. 

The Secretary reported upon plans for the 
course in Civilian Pilot Training authorized by the 
Executive Committee of the Board and in accordance with 
agreement with the Federal Civil Aeronautics Authority. 
This program involves the College in no expense and 
makes possible a pilot training program for twenty stu- 
dents of the College. It is expected that instruction 
will begin in -January.

It was 

VOTED : To inscribe the following resolution in 
the records of the Board and to forward 
copies of it to Dr. Dewey and Dr. Gannon. 

A Resolution of Appreciation 
of the Services of Trustees 
Dewey and Gannon 

"Dr. Davis R. Dewey, member of the College 
Board of Trustees since 1909 and Dr. John F. Gannon, mem- 
ber of the Board since 1915, have retired as of January 
1940 and it is fitting at this time to recognize by 
inscription on the records of the Board the excellent 
service which these men have rendered to the College dur- 
ing their long and able careers as Trustees. 

"As a member of the Committee on Extension, Dr. 
Dewey has helped to develop this arm of the College into 
a vital educational force in the lives of our rural 
people. As veteran member, and later chairman of the 
Committee on Faculty and Program of Study, he has contri- 
buted vastly to the building and maintaining of high 
scholastic standards for the institution, and a sound 
program of educational activity. He has served also 011 
the Horticulture, and Finance Committees. 

"Dr. Gannon, likewise, has been particularly 
interested in the work of the Committees on Extension 
and on Faculty and Program of Study. It is a credit to 
his imagination and energy that Massachusetts State 
College today is among the leaders in the soundness of 
Its program of resident study and in the richness of its 
Extension educational program for rural people. Many 
farmers and farm families throughout the State who have 
never met Trustee Gannon have been the gainers for the 
years he has given to the guidance of our College. 

"In recognition of the distinguished services 
which Dr. Dewey and Dr. Gannon have rendered to the 
cause of education, it is hereby resolved that the above 
statement be inscribed on the official records of the 
Board of Trustees of Massachusetts State College and 
that copies of the resolution be forwarded to Dr. Dewey 
and Dr . Gannon. " 

The Committee on Nominations presented its re- 
port recommending officers and committees of the Board 
for the ensuing year. The Secretary was ordered to cast

Mrs. McNamara, Hubbard, President Baker, also 
Mr. Hawley, Mr. Burke, Mr. Guernsey (of Mr. 
Bartlett* s Office), Mr. Haines (representing 
Alumni Corporation), and Mr. Brett 

In the absence of Vice-President Bowditch, the meeting 
was called to order by President Baker and, upon motion of Dr. 
Hubbard, Mr. Bartlett was named Chairman. 

The Chairman explained the purpose of the meeting as 

indicated in the call and referred to the consideration given to 

the subject by the Finance Committee. Upon report from the 

Finance Committee and their recommendation, it was 

VOTED : To specify in the building lease that the 
Trustees pay to the Massachusetts State 
College Building Association the sum of 
v 30, 000 per annum to cover interest end 
retirement of bond with final payment not 
later than September 1, 196l. 

The form of lease of land by the Trustees to the Build- 
ing Corporation and the form of lease of buildings, when completed, 
to the Trustees by the Building Corporation were explained by the 
Chairman, officers of the College, and representatives of the Build- 
ing Corporation. These lease forms had previously been distributed 
to members of the Finance Committee. 

In the discussion and questions which followed, it was 
indicated by Mr. Haines, representing the Building Corporation, that 
the Corporation would pay cost arising from the operation of the

i building until funds were appropriated to the College for this pur- 
pose by the Legislature. In the event that the dormitories should 
not be completed on contract time and hence that the College would 
not have as much rent as anticipated the first year, the penalty 
clause of the contractor would be invoked and the amount of money 
accruing from this source would be applied to the retirement of the 



bond. 



It was pointed out by the Treasurer that in order to 



I 



I 



finance this project, it will be necessary to increase the schedule 
of room rents now charged to students in college dormitories. 
Following discussion, it was 



VOTED: That the form of lease of two parcels of land, for 
the erection of dormitory buildings, from the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts to Massachusetts State 
College Building Association and the form of lease 
of said two dormitories from said Association to the 
Commonwealth, both as presented to this meeting, be 
and hereby are approved, with the insertion in each 
lease of a date for the stated end of the term there- 
of not later than September 1, 1961, as determined 
by the trustees executing said respective leases; 
and that the trustees of Massachusetts State College 
or a majority thereof be and hereby are authorized, 
in the name and on behalf of the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts to execute, acknowledge and deliver 
in or substantially in the respective forms pre- 
sented to this meeting, said lease of land from the 
Commonwealth to said Association and said lease of 
buildings from said Association to the Commonwealth, 
and to cause the common seal of the Massachusetts 
State College or the great seal of the Commonwealth 
to be affixed thereto. 

Chairman Bartlett asked if it would be helpful to the 

Trustees if members of the Finance Committee would consider the 

lease carefully and communicate their approval of same for the 

guidance of Trustees at time of affixing signatures, and it was 






1006

VOTED : To authorize the Finance Committee to approve 
said lease and communicate their approval for 
the guidance of the Board.

in new dormitories and adjusting the rentals in present dormitories 

to bring these rents in line with those for the new buildings, and 

it was

Secretary of the College to prepare a schedule 
rentals of rooms in all dormitories and to sub- 
mit these nev^r schedules for approval at a special 
meeting of the Finance Committee.

VOTED: To authorize the Finance Committee to pass upon 
and adopt said rental schedule. 

The Chairman read a letter from Alden C. Brett, President 

of the Associate Alumni, as follows: 

"On behalf of the Associate Alumni, I want to express 
to the officers and Trustees of Massachusetts State 
College the sincere appreciation which I know is 
shared by all Alumni on account of the fine co- 
operation which has been given in the effort which 
we expect will result in the erection of two new 
dormitories . 

"I trust that we may look forward to other projects 
of similar merit which may be accomplished by this 
same kind of a joint effort." 

And it was 

VOTED: To receive and record said letter.

Mr. Hawley, Mr. Burke 

Following is the call for the meeting. 

April 17, 1940 

Board of Trustees 
Massachusetts State College 

Upon the written request of three Trustees 
and in accordance with the provisions of the By-Laws, 
a special meeting of the Board of Trustees of Massa- 
chusetts State College is hereby called to convene 
at the President's Office at Amherst at 10:30 A.M. 
on Thursday, May 2, 194-0. The purpose of this meet- 
ing will be to consider personnel and financial 
matters and such other business as may properly be 
presented. The Trustees will attend the student 
Convocation at 11 o'clock, will have luncheon with 
some members of the Faculty at noon, and will hold 
a business session following the luncheon. 

Very truly yours, 

/s/ James W. Burke 
Secretary

meet the payroll for the balance of the year and care for step 
increases without drawing upon maintenance funds. Mr. Hawley 
pointed out that economies are being made in the use of coal by 
cutting off heat from some of the buildings during the hours 
9:00 P.M. to 5:00 A.M. He reported also that the central control 
of all cars and trucks ov/ned by the College had saved the College 
$457 in the past year despite an increase in mileage. 

President Baker discussed some of the difficulties in 
carrying on the college business on the present small budget - 
pointing out that it has been necessary to employ less temporary 
labor and to make smaller departmental appropriations. 

The President discussed the step system of salary in- 
creases for college employees. He stated that when the College 
submitted its last biennial budget, provision was made for step 
increases but later it was found that last year*s funds were in- 
sufficient for applying the step increase to all employees. It 
was, therefore, decided to grant increases only to those in the 
grade of Instructor or below. This year, because of the discon- 
tinuance of Summer School and other savings, the College is pro- 
posing to make the step system effective for the entire group in 
accordance with the budget originally approved by the Trustees. 
Step increases, the President explained, are not mandatory but are 
granted in recognition of good work. They are an important factor 
in maintaining morale.

President Baker read a letter from Mr- F. Civille Pray, 

Chairman of the Board of Selectmen of the Town of Amherst, on the 

subject of the new sewage disposal plant which the town has built, 

In brief, this letter called upon the College for a payment of 

$10,000 toward the building of the sewer and a payment of $1,000 

annually for maintenance. The President stated that no trustee 

action was needed at the present time but that an item would be 

t in next year's budget to cover the college's share for this 

sewage disposal plant. In the meantime, further investigations 

will be made to establish a fair annual maintenance cost for the 



Col] ege. 



Treasurer Hawley reviewed the matter of the Treasurer's 



bond and requested Trustees to approve the bond as re-worded to 

cover the trust funds and student revolving funds as suggested by 

the Finance Committee of the Board. This coverage was effected by 

the introduction of the following clause: "and shall faithfully 

c«re for and administer all trust, endowment and other funds 

placed in his care by the Trustees of said College." It was 

VOTED : To approve the Treasurer's bond as re-worded 
and to authorize the Secretary to indicate 
the Trustees' action thereon.

women's dormitory has been let by the Alumni Building Corporation

that one year's leave of absence be granted to Professor Emmett 
Bennett, Assistant Research Professor in Chemistry, for the

purposeof graduate study at Pennsylvania State College, and, it was 

VOTED ; To grant leave of absence during the period 
September 1, 194-0 to August 31, 1941 to Pro- 
fessor Emmett Bennett on the basis of half 
salary for one year or full salary for one- 
half year. 

President Baker recommended to the Trustees that Dr. 
Walter S. Ritchie be transferred from the Experiment Station staff 
to the instructional staff of the College and made Head of the De- 
partment of Chemistry and Goessmann Professor of Chemistry. Dr. 
Ritchie came to the College as Research Professor of Chemistry in 
1934 with B.S. in Agriculture from Ohio State University, A.M. 
and Ph.D. from University of Missouri. 

In accordance with the President's recommendation, it was 

VOTED,; To transfer Dr. Walter S. Ritchie from Ex- 
periment Station staff to the instructional 
staff of the College and to elect him Head 
of the Department of Chemistry and Goessmann 
Professor of Chemistry at the salary rate of 
14,320. 

President Baker explained that the new dormitory for 

women will necessitate the employment of a house mother and that 

this woman should join the staff of the College by the opening of 

the 1940 college year, In September it is planned to house as 

many women as possible in North College, formerly occupied by men 

students, and the house mother would be needed to supervise this 

group. When the new dormitory for women is opened in 1941 > it is 

proposed to transfer the girls and the house mother to the new 

building. After that time, the President explained, it is the 

hope of the administration that North College may be remodelled to 

provide much needed classroom space. In accordance with the 

recommendation of the President, it was

President Baker distributed detailed statement of ex- 
penditures during the past six months from income of unearmarked 
trust funds as authorized by the Trustees and it was 
VOTED; To approve the expenditures as presented. 

It was also 

VOTED : To authorize the President to expend up to 
$$00 from the income of unearmarked trust 
funds during the next six months. 

President Baker stated that the College now holds a 
balance of $8,555.69 in a Dining Hall Fund. This money was paid 
in by students for Dining Hall services before the Dining Hall 
Account was taken over by the State. This money is serving no 
useful purpose at the present time and there is no clear statement 
as to how it may be used. Therefore, the President said the Ad- 
ministration would like authorisation to introduce a bill into the 
Legislature authorizing the Trustees of the College to use this 
Dining Hall Fund balance for scholarships inasmuch as the fund was 
created by students. Upon the recommendation of the President, it 
was 

VOTED : To authorize the Administration to introduce 
a bill into the Legislature which would 
authorize the Trustees of the College to use 
this Dining Hall Fund balance for scholarships. 

President Baker brought up the need for more effective 

policing of the Campus and other property owned by the College 

stating that at the present time there is lack of clarity in the 

legal position of the College with respect to policing. Mr. Moran, 

the Campus Police Officer, has no authority from the State Police

Commissioner to make arrests nor to enforce traffic rules. 
Furthermore, it is doubtful if the College could enforce any 
limitation in speed of vehicles on the Campus and other college 
property. If the college authorities are to give adequate pro- 
tection to students and visitors , the President feels that there 
should be some clarification of the college's legal position with 
respect to policing. Specifically, the President requested 
authority to introduce a bill into the Legislature which would 
give authority to the College Trustees effectively to police the 
Campus and other property controlled by the College. After 
discussion, it was 

VOTED : T authorize the President to take whatever 
steps are necessary to see that the Campus 
and other property owned by the College is 
adequately policed. 

At the request of the President, Treasurer H a wley distri-j 

buted a financial report for the first half of the 19-40 fiscal 

year and discussed in detail changes of investment made in the fund 

held by the Springfield Safe Deposit and Trust Company and it was 

VOTED ? To approve, ratify, and confirm the following 
changes of investment made in the agency fund

Company under agreement dated January 22, 1937

Federal Government and kept on the collage campus in connection 

with activities of the ROTC unit. He stated that the Federal 

Government will accept non-surety bond from state institutions 

charged with military property and that by this means the College 

could save $210 annually which could be used much more effectively 

in other ways. The only time when the College might be held 

financially liable for military property would be in the event 

that such property were destroyed, damaged, or lost through gross 

neglect on the part of those charged with its care. After 

discussion, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Treasurer as permitted by 

army regulation to substitute for the present 
surety bond a bond without surety covering 
military property loaned by the Federal 
Government to the College for use of the RQTC. 

Upon the recommendation of President Baker, it was 

VOTED : To confirm previous mail ballot by which the 
Trustees voted to name the new dormitory for 
men Le?/is Hall in honor of former President 
Edward M. Lewis. 

President Baker discussed preliminary negotiations be- 
tween the College and the Town of Amherst in connection with the 
new sewage disposal plant built by the town on property sold to 
them by the College. The Town of Amherst through its Board of 
Selectmen has submitted a proposal that the College pay $1,000 
annually for ten years as its share toward the cost of construction 
of this plant and #1,000 annually for three years as its share in 
the cost of maintaining the sewage system and sewage disposal works 
with the understanding that at the end of the three years the 
annual charge shall be determined by mutual agreement of the

Furthermore, Mr. Hawley had worked on the matter with Representa- 
tives of the State Public Health Service and Mr. Hawley stated that 
the charge was arrived at by using a recognized formula which takes 
into account the population of the College, the amount of water 
used, and other factors. After discussion, it was

Upon recommendation from the Finance Committee, it was 

VOTED ; To authorize the Treasurer to set up a Revolving 
Loan Account for student loans from the D. K. 
Bangs Fund and to transfer to this account from 
the principal account the sum of $1,070.79 and

transferred to it from income. 

Upon recommendation from the Finance Committee, it was 

VOTED ; To authorize the Treasurer to fix interest rates 
on all student loans at 3% per year until the 
maturity of the note and 5% thereafter. 

The Chairman stated that the main purpose of the special 
meeting of the Trustees was to consider a recommendation from the 
Associate Alumni of Massachusetts State College that the Trustees 
take whatever action is necessary to frame and file with the 
coming session of the General Court a bill changing the name of 
Massachusetts State College to Massachusetts State University. 
Upon the request of the Chairman, Secretary Burke read the follow- 
ing letter: 

"To the Trustees of Massachusetts State College :- 
Gentlemen: 

As you undoubtedly know, the organized alumni of the College have 
for some time been considering the desirability of changing the 
status of the College to that of a State University. These 
discussions came to a head at the last meeting of the Board of 
Directors of the Associate Alumni, when it was unanimously voted 
to recommend to the Trustees of the College that they take 
seasonable action to file a bill at the coming session of the Legis 
lature to make effectual such a change. 

T am giving you briefly in the following letter some of the argu- 
ments which were given weight by the Alumni Directors in the de- 
liberations which preceded their vote:- 

1. During the past few years there have been several attempts by 
existing or proposed organizations other than Massachusetts State 
College to appropriate the name "University of Massachusetts" or 
"Massachusetts State University." This name should be used to 
designate the senior, state-3upported institution, qualified by 



1031 



D. K. Bangs 
Fund 



University of 
Massachusetts 



1032 



TRUSTEE 



THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

the grade and character of its instruction to use the name 
"University," and should not be available for use by others. 

2. Massachusetts State College as it is constituted today is, in 
effect, a university, and it should be known and conducted as 
such. Its divisions are, in fact, schools, and no radical change 
in organization or increase in expense should result from a change 
in name. 

3. The setting-off of various schools under a university type of 
operation should increase the efficiency and guarantee the 
integrity of each. This should be particularly true of the 
School of Agriculture. You may have heard complaints in recent 
years from the older Alumni that the Department of Agriculture at 
the College seems to be losing its identity and that instruction 
in this branch of science is apparently being neglected. Although 
investigation will reveal the fact that such is not the case, it 
is difficult to show convincing proof due to the merging of the 
activities of this department with those of others. The establish- 
ment of a school of Agriculture within the State University would 
serve to set off the activities of this division and would bring 
them into focus for friendly or critical observation. 

/+.. We believe that the Commonwealth has a duty to maintain a state 
university providing higher education in its several branches at 
low cost, especially for the benefit of the sons and daughters of 
those of our citizens who cannot afford to pay the tuition rates 
demanded by other institutions. We would call to your attention 
the fact that the tuition rates at engineering schools giving in- 
struction of collegiate grade, such as Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology and Worcester Polytechnic Institute, are very much in 
excess of those at Massachusetts State College, and that many 
students are barred from continuing their studies in this essential 
field for this reason. 

5» The states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Connecticut 
have found that to serve the educational needs of their citizens 
adequately, they must have State Universities. It is our opinion 
that the needs of Massachusetts are not greatly different from 
theirs, and that we should follow their lead in this respect 
without further delay. 

6. We are informed from authoritative sources that Massachusetts 
State College is better equipped today to assume university status 
than were the Colleges of Elaine, New Hampshire, or Connecticut, 
when they became universities. 

7. The change in name alone will add to the prestige of graduates 
and students. This should not be denied them when we have, in 
fact, a University today.

It is our considered opinion that immediate action should be taken. 
Due to the fact that we now have biennial sessions of the Legis- 
lature, lack of such action will mean a postponement for at least 
two years. This we believe is unnecessary and undesirable. 

We recommend, therefore, that the Trustees take whatever action is 
necessary to frame and file with the coming session of the General 
Court a bill changing the name of Massachusetts State College to 
Massachusetts State University. 

Very truly yours, 

/s/ A. C. Brett, President 
Associate Alumni of 
Massachusetts State College" 
ACB:GEG 

There was lengthy discussion of the Alumni proposal and 
the Trustees invited Ralph Taber to appear before the Board as 
representative of the Associate Alumni. 

Mr. Taber then entered the room and was invited by the 
Chairman to speak for the Associate Alumni on the university pro- 



posal. 



Mr. Taber stated that the Associate Alumni have given 



careful consideration to the question of university status and 
that the directors are in unanimous agreement that the time has 
come when the Legislature should be requested to make the change. 
He stated that at least 500 Massachusetts students annually go to 
other New England state universities for education, apparently be- 
cause Massachusetts does not provide for their needs. He said 
that he had discussed the matter with Mr. Greenleaf of the United 
States Department of Education and that Mr, Greenleaf expressed 
the opinion that the trend at Massachusetts State College has been 
toward university status and that the College is now ready for the 
change. Mr. Taber expressed his opinion that there is agitation

status 



THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 



in various quarters for the establishment of a state university 
in Massachusetts and that if the university is started elsewhere 
than at Massachusetts State College, the taxpayers will suffer be- 
cause of duplication of facilities. 

Mr* Taber was asked whether the Associate Alumni felt 
that the bill for changing the status of the College to that of a 
university should be introduced by the Trustees rather than by 
the Associate Alumni. He replied that so far as he knew the 
Associate Alumni themselves would be very happy to introduce the 
bill but that they wanted the backing of the Trustees. He said 
the Alumni would not care to undertake any legislation that did 
not meet with the approval of the Trustees. At this point he re- 
tired from the meeting. 

After further discussion, it was 

VOTED.: To request the Vice-President of the Board of 
Trustees to name a committee of three Trustees 
to work with the President of the College in 
considering further the question of university 
status, this committee to report to the full 
Board at the annual meeting in January. 

And, it was also 

VOTED: To defer action on the request of the Associate 
Alumni until this special committee reports to 
the Board. 

It was 

VOTED : To authorize the President to transmit to the 

Associate Alumni a record of the Trustee action 
on the matter of university status. 

The Chairman asked the opinion of the Trustees as to the 

best day for holding of the annual meeting, which according to 

the By-Laws must be held during the third week in January, and it

Upon the written request of five Trustees 
and in accordance with the provisions of the 
By-Laws, a special meeting of the Board of 
Trustees of Massachusetts State College is 
hereby called to convene at the President's 
Office at Amherst at 10:30 A.M. on Thursday,

student Convocation at 11 o'clock, will have 
luncheon with some members of the Faculty at

Very truly yours, 

/s/ James W. Burke 
Secretary 

At 11 o'clock the Trustees adjourned to Bowker Auditorium 
in Stockbridge Hall to participate in the Convocation of the stu- 
dent body. Here they were joined by Trustees Whitmore and 
Bartlett.

At 12 o'clock the Trustees adjourned to the cab5.net 
room of Draper Hall for luncheon where they were joined by Mrs. 
Canavan and by the following staff members: Machmer, Xoung, Rice, 
Hawley, Lanphear, and Hicks. 

President Baker informed the Trustees that to date 
applications for admission to the College in the fall are running 
far ahead of last year. The President called on Registrar 
Lanphear for a word on the possible effects of the draft on stu- 
dent enrollment. Mr. Lanphear said that in his opinion the 
College will lose very few students next year because of Selective 
Service. Some of the students are under age for the draft - 
others are enrolled in the ROTC advanced course and do not need to 
register. Other students are engaged in studies which will 
probably be considered by the draft boards as necessary to the 
national health, safety, or interest and so these students will 
be deferred. 

President Baker called on Dean Machmer for any informa- 
tion he might offer on the subject of transfer students. The Dean 
stated that the College always has a great number of requests from 
students at other colleges and universities to transfer into the 
College. However, with the present size of the student body and 
the necessity for restricting enrollment of entering classes, he 
can do very little for students desiring to transfer to the 
College. 

President Baker described to the Trustees the adaptations 
of the college program to meet defense needs of the country. The 
changes which have been made so far have not added to the cost of

the College. The President then asked the Trustees if it might 
not be vdse for the College to list further defense activities 
which it could undertake but which would require funds and submit 
such list to the Governor and Council. This would indicate the 
readiness of the College to assist further in the defense program 
to any extent the Governor might desire* 

President Baker called on Colonel Young for a report on 
the ROTC unit of the College. Colonel Young described the work 
of the corps and said that at present the War Department has 
limited the size of the advanced unit to sixty men. More students 
would like the opportunity to go on with the last two years of 
ROTC so as to cvualify for commissions in the U. S. Army Reserve 
and he will do all he can to have the limit raised. 

At one o'clock the meeting was adjourned to the Presi- 
dent's Office. 

At 1:10 in the President's Office, the meeting was 
called to order by Vice President Bowditch. The following indi- 
viduals were presents Trustees: Bowditch, Hubbard, Bartlett,

Treasurer Hawley presented brief financial report for 
the first half of the present fiscal year* 

President Baker reported that at the present time, the 

Trustees have authorized the President and Secretary to represent 

the Board in signing financial schedules prepared by the Treasurer 

Ifith the present accounting and financial system, these schedules 

must go out from the College almost daily and it sometimes happens 

that both the President and the Secretary are away. Therefore, 

the President recommended that Vice President Bowditch should 

appoint two Trustees to sign financial schedules in the event 

both the President and Secretary are away. He felt that such 

action might well be confirmed by vote of the Board of Trustees. 

On the President's recommendation, it was 

VOTED : To approve the appointment by the Vice Presi- 
dent of two Trustees to sign financial 
schedules of the College in the absence of 
both the President and Secretary. 

Vice President Bowditch then appointed Trustees 
Canavan and Whitmore in accordance with preceding vote. 

At the request of the Chairman, President Baker and 
Treasurer liawley informed the Trustees of request from the Massa- 
chusetts Society for Promoting Agriculture for return of #1,000 
given to Mr. Farley, State Leader of 4-H Club Tfork in 1927 to be 
used as a loan fund for aiding worthy 4-H Club members. 

The fund has been administered by the College Treasurer 
as one of the agency funds of the College. In asking for the re- 
turn of the money, the Society stated that it would pay to Mr. 
Farley or to the College the sum of $50 annually.

Mr. Bartlett raised question as to the authority of the 

Trustees to relinquish this fund and after discussion, it was 

VOTED : To refer the request of the Society for the 
Promotion of Agriculture to the Trustee 
Finance Committee with power. 

President Baker informed the Trustees that Miss Ruth 

Mclntire, who now holds option to purchase a small tract of land 

in the Clark Estate, is willing to turn over to the College, in 

exchange for this tract, a strip of land located between the 

Apiary and Butterfield Terrace. Treasurer Hawley showed the 

Trustees maps of both parcels and President Baker stated that the 

College would benefit by the exchange as it could then better pro- 

c 
test its Apiary holdings and insure right of way to Butterfield 

Terrace. After discussion, it was 

VOTED: To authorize the President and Treasurer 
to negotiate with Miss Mclntire for ex- 
change of the two pieces of land at such 
time as she is ready to build a personal 
dwelling on her adjoining property. 

President Baker reported on the f ollowing- personnel 

matters: 

Three staff members are now on military leave: 

Calvin S. Hannum, Instructor of English and Mathematics. 
Walter J. Hodder, Laboratory Assistant in Vegetable 

Gardening. 
John D. Swenson, Instructor in Mathematics.

courses in Public Health which the Department of Bacteriology has 
recommended for inauguration in the fall of 1941 « These courses 
if approved by the Trustees would be given in cooperation with 
the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The Department of 
Public Health would provide instructors and no additional cost to 
the College would be involved. The courses are particularly im- 
portant now in vie?; of serious shortage expected in Public Health

President Baker outlined a proposal of the Music 

Committee of Massachusetts State College to bring music teachers 

to the Campus for private instruction to students. The 

recommendation specifically is that the College accept and 

recognize a selected list of teachers in vocal and instrumental 

music whose names would be placed in the College Catalogue and 

who would be available for private instruction for those students 

desiring to take advantage of the opportunity. No financial 

obligation on the part of the College is involved. Teachers 

would be paid by the students either per lesson or per semester. 

Similar plans have been in practice for some years at Iowa State 

College, Michigan State College, and others. After discussion of 

the plan, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Administration to proceed 
with the music plan as recommended by the 
Committee and as outlined above by the 
President. 

In accordance with custom, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the President to expend an 

amount not to exceed $500 from the income 
of unearmarked trust funds during the 
period June 7 to the time of the annual 
meeting in 1942. 

President Baker reported on expenditures during the 

last six months from unearmarked trust funds and indicated that 

only $235 had been spent because of decrease in income from such 

funds.

President Baker introduced a recommendation from the 
Director of the Stockbridge School of Agriculture for the institu- 
tion of a new major course in marketing of Perishable Foods, He

basis in Holyoke and had been well attended and enthusiastically 
received by employees in retail fruit and vegetable stores. 
Trustee Griggs said that he had learned of the course when it was 
given in Holyoke and in his opinion it was successfully meeting a 
real need. After discussion, it was 

VOTED ; To introduce a major course in Marketing of 
Perishable Foods in the Stockbridge School 
of Agriculture, effective September 1941* 

The following vote was taken by mail ballot and is

Dear Sir: 

In accordance with Section 7 of Chapter 75 of 
the General Laws, the Trustees of this College administer 
endowment funds amounting in total to approximately 
$150,000. In connection with their administration of 
these funds, the Trustees respectfully request your opinion 
on two points ♦ 

1. May the Trustees expend a certain portion of 
the income from these endowment funds for compensation to 
a bank or trust company for services as agent for the col- 
lection of income and custodian of the investment securities? 

2. May the Trustees pay from the income compensa- 
tion to an outside agency for services as investment coun- 
sellor in connection with the investment of endowment prin- 
cipal? 

Your opinion upon these two questions will be 
greatly appreciated by the Board of Trustees of the Massa- 
chusetts State College. 

Respectfully yours, 



Treasurer

Trustees of Massachusetts State College 
Amherst , Massachusetts 

Gentlemen: 

In connection with your duties under G.L. c.75, section 
7, relating to the administration by you of endowment funds 
amounting to a total of approximately one hundred and fifty thou- 
sand dollars j you have requested my opinion on the following 
questions: 

"1. May the Trustees expend a certain portion 
of the income from these endowment funds for 
compensation to a bank or trust company for 
services as agent for the collection of inoome 
and custodian of the investment securities? 

2. May the Trustees pay from the inoome compen- 
sation to an outside agency for services as in- 
vestment counsellor in connection with the in- 
vestment of endowment principal?" 

G.L. c. 75, section 7, reads as follows: 

^The trustees shall administer property 
held in accordance with special trusts, and 
shall also administer grants or devises of land 
and gifts or bequests of personal property made 
to the commonwealth for the use of the college, and 
execute said trusts, investing the proceeds thereof 
in notes or bonds seoured by sufficient mortgages 
or other securities." 

The opinion submitted herein deals solely with the 
pavers of the trustees with respect to those portions of the 
endowment funds which are not subject to special restrictions. 
With respect to funds in the Hatter class I can offer no opinion 
as to the trustees 1 powers without full information regarding 
such restrictions. 

Since chapter 75, section 7, does not specifically 
define the powers of the trustees in the matters about which 
you inquire, your questions must be answered in the light of 
legal principles applicable to trustees generally. 



i 



I 



I 



-2- 

Your first question must be divided into two parts; 

A» Employme nt by the trustees of agent to collect income . 

In my opinion you may properly employ a bank or trust 
company to act as agent for the collection of income on endow- 
ment funds and may compensate such agent out of the income from 
the funds. This power is subject to several qualifications. 
Trustees must exercise due care and diligence in selecting such 
an agent and in supervising its activities. They must be 
satisfied that the employment of such an agent is reasonable 
and prudent and for the best interests of the trust. The ex- 
pense incurred in connection with the employment of such an 
agent must be reasonable under all the circumstances. 

B* Employment of agent as custodian of investment securities 

In my opinion the trustees do not have the authority to 
employ a bank or trust company as their agent to act as such 
custodian. The courts have uniformly held that trustees cannot 
delegate their duty to secure and retain custody and control of 
trust property and that such custody and control may be surren- 
dered by the trustees only in the event of absolute necessity. 

Your second question I am unable to answer flatly in 
the affirmative or the negative. The courts have not passed 
specifically on this question, and, in the absence of such 
decisions, I am unable to advise you tHaat you have authority to 
employ investment counselors vfaose compensation would be paid 
from the trust estate or income. If the trustees are agreed as 
to the desirability of employing such investment counsel, the 
doubt as to their legal right to do so might be resolved by their 
filing a petition for instructions in the probate court. 

The general principles of law defining the duties of 
trustees with respeot to investments have been laid down in 
many adjudicated cases. In the oase of Springfield Safe Deposit 
and Trust Co . v. First Unitarian Society. 293 Mass. 4,80, 4,85, 
the court said: 

n The principle of law in this Commonwealth 
governing the conduct of a trustee in making 
investments has been established for more 
than a oentury. A trustee is required to con- 
duct himself faithfully and to exercise a . 
sound discretion, and to be enlightened by 
observance as to how men of prudence, dis- 
cretion and intelligence manage their own 
agfairs, not in regard to speculation but in 
regard to the permanent disposition of their 
funds, considering the probable income as 
well as the probable safety of the capital. 



1 



J 



I 



-3- 

Good faith and sound discretion, informed by 
experience and wise observation, constitute 
the standard.* 1 

It has also been held that trustees may not delegate 
their duty of deciding what investments shall be made with the 
trust funds. Boston v. Cur ley , 276 Mass. 549. 

It has been held also that trustees can properly incur 
expenses which are necessary or appropriate to carry out the 
purposes of the trust when such expenses are not forbidden by 
the terms of the trust. In view of the complexity of modern 
finance, the difficulty under present economic conditions of 
making investments which provide reasonable security and a fair 
return, and the comparatively recent development of the business 
or profession of investment counseling, it is quite possible 
that the courts might approve the employment of an investment 
counselor, by trustees in appropriate circumstances. Signifi- 
cant factors in determining the propriety of such employment in 
a given case would include the nature and extent of the trust 
property, the income derived therefrom, the experience and 
qualifications of the trustees with respect to matters of in- 
vestment, the care exercised in selecting the investment oounselor, 
the cost incurred therefor, and the extent to whioh the trustees 
have made independent studies of investment matters. 

I regret that I cannot advise you more definitely on 
this important question. It is surprising that such a question 
has not yet been adjudicated, but inasmuch as it has not been 
so adjudicated, to my mind the safest policy for trustees in 
your position to follow would be as indicated, to seek specific 
instructions from the probate court. 

Very truly yours, 



/s/ Robert T. Bushnell 
Attorney General

THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

The Secretary then presented recommendations from the 
Committee on Faculty and Program of Study that the present college 
year be shortened in accordance with schedule presented by the Ad- 
ministration and that a twelve weeks' summer program be instituted; 
and recommendation from the Committee on Finance that the President 
be authorized to request necessary funds for supplies and equipment 
for carrying on the twelve weeks' summer program in 194-2, 

Dr. Hubbard moved that the Trustees request an appropria- 
tion for the payment of instructors who would carry on the summer 
program. He recommended that the Trustees seek an appropriation of 
$12,000 to cover all expenses of the college session. Such money, 
he said, would not represent an additional burden for taxpayers in- 
asmuch as the College would be receiving equal income from student 
payments. In effect, therefore, the summer program would be self- 
supporting. 

Governor Saltonstall suggested that the Trustees should 
not seek a special appropriation from the Legislature. He indi- 
cated that the legislative program had been made up and that the 
Legislature would probably be asked to appropriate a special 
emergency fund to be expended at the discretion of the Executive. 
Because of the many emergency demands expected in the next year, it 
was felt by legislative leaders that the Executive should have a 
fund which could be apportioned to meet needs as they occurred. He 
said that if the President or the Trustees would come to him after 
they had developed their summer program and proposed budget, he 
would go over the matter with them and give every consideration to 
their needs.

He indicated that he had not yet made up his own mind as 
to feasibility of paying instructors for the twelve weeks' summer 
program. He said that the professors at one large university were 
volunteering their services. However, the salaries at this univer- 
sity are considerably higher than the salaries at the State College 
and this should be taken into account, he felt. 

Mr. Hubbard indicated that he for one would be very well 
satisfied with the procedure which the Governor outlined and that 
he wished to withdraw his motion. 

On the recommendation of the Committee on Faculty and 

Program of Study, it was unanimously 

VOTED ; To grant the honorary degree of LL.D in May 1942 
to Nathaniel I. Bowditch, Trustee of the College 
for 45 years, in recognition of his life long and 
outstanding service to agriculture and to educa- 
tion in the Commonwealth. 

At the suggestion of the Governor, the Trustees honored 
Mr. Bowditch by rising vote. 

At this point, the Governor left the meeting and Mr. 

Bowditch took the chair. On the recommendation of the Committee on 

Faculty and Program of Study, it was 

VOTED: To adopt the following calendar for the balance 
of the present college year and to institute a 
twelve weeks' summer session effective June 1,

Following is the call for the meeting: 

March 26, 194-2 

Board of Trustees 
Massachusetts State College 

Upon request of three members of the 3oard, 
and in compliance with the By-Laws, a Special Meeting 
of the Board will be held in the President's Office 
at 10:30 A.M. on Thursday, April 16. 

It is planned that the Trustees will robe 
in academic costume to attend the annual Phi Kappa 
Phi Convocation which begins at 11 o'clock. Luncheon 
will be served in Draper hall at 12 o'clock and 
formal meeting will begin at about 1:30 in the Presi- 
dent's Office. 

The purpose of the meeting will be to con- 
sider and act upon current affairs so as to reduce 
the number of matters to come before the Board at 
the time of the Commencement meeting, which is always 
a busy period. 

Sincerely, 

/s/ James W. Burke 
Secretary 

The Trustees attended Phi Kappa Phi Convocation at 11 
o'clock. The speaker was Dr. Odell Shepard, Professor of English 
at Trinity College and Lieutenant Governor of the State of 
Connecticut . 

Following Convocation the group met in Draper Hall and 
luncheon was served. During the luncheon, President Baker called

on Dean Machmer to discuss the development of plans for the summer 
session. The Dean indicated that 350 to 4-00 students would probably 
sign up for the summer period with heaviest registration in 
Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics. Enrollment for the fall 
semester is running a little behind the same period last year but 
the Dean felt that the freshman class would be equal in size to 
last year's freshman class - about 3&0. Some falling off in en- 
rollment in the upper classes is to be expected. 

There was discussion of the matter of granting credits 
for students who leave during the year to enter the Armed Forces 
and Dean Machmer said that the problem was being given very careful 
attention and so far was working out satisfactorily. 

President Baker indicated that the College might be faced 
with a personnel problem next year as staff members continue to 
enter the Armed Forces. The College Faculty includes quite a 
number of reserve officers who are being called to the Army. 

At the request of the President, Dr. Bradley described 
the new courses being offered by the College in cooperation with 
the State Department of Health. Dr. Bradley indicated that these 
courses were to train sanitary inspectors and were not for public 
health administrators. The program was inaugurated when the State 
Department of Health indicated that there was a shortage of sani- 
tary inspectors in this State and called on the College to set up 
a program to provide this type of instruction.' 

The Department of health is providing teachers by allow- 
ing its men stationed at IVestfield to drive over to the College to 
meet with classes. However, with the scarcity of tires, it seems

best to station the Westfield officers at the College permanently if 
room can be found for them. The only possibility for their housing 
seems to be the attic of Marshall Hall which would need to be 
partitioned, insulated, and finished off at a cost of around $3>000. 

President Baker indicated that he had no recommendation to 
make to the Trustees at this time but wanted them to be informed of 
the problem involved and of the service to the State which was being 
rendered through this new work. 

Director Sievers spoke briefly on contributions of the Ex- 
periment Sta.tion to the Nation's war program. He pointed out that 
the Station was not emphasizing nevf research to meet war needs but 
rather that it was performing its best service by being in a posi- 
tion through past research to solve problems which have arisen be- 
cause of war. For example, farmers are now faced with a shortage of 
nitrate fertilizer and must turn to substitutes. Through the years 
the Station has experimented with substitute materials and can pro- 
vide farmers with specific recommendations for their use. Similarly 
the Station is equipped to make definite recommendations concerning 
substitutes for scarce spray materials, dairy cattle feed, and 
poultry feed. Thus the large body of knowledge which the Station 
has accumulated slowly through the years is proving of tremendous 
value today in the Nation's war program. 

At 1:30 the Trustees adjourned to President Baker's Office 
and with Trustee Whitmore presiding, the formal session was opened. 

It was 

VOTED: To dispense with the reading of the call for the

Report 



THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

It was 

VOTED: To dispense with the reading of the minutes of 
the last meeting of the Board. 

Treasurer Hawley then presented brief financial report of 
the College emphasizing the following: 

With the marked increase in prices, funds for supplies and 
materials are less adequate than formerly but this is largely off- 
set by unavailability of materials and consequent forced reduction 
of purchases. 

Normal increase in personnel costs due to nev/ iDositions, 
step salary increases, etc. exceeds the increase in funds jorovided 
so that the College is facing substantial overdrafts particularly 
in the Instruction account. However, it is possible that resigna- 
tions or leaves of absence may provide the necessary savings before 
the end of the year. If they do not, it may be necessary to curtail 
the employment of temporary personnel. 

The quarterly allotment system puts the administration of 
the College in a difficult position. On the one hand, the College 
is required by the Comptroller's Bureau to keep its disbursements 
within the amount allotted to each quarter; and on the other hand, 
unforeseen situations are continually arising which call for dis- 
bursements in excess of allotments. The machinery for arranging 
transfers is not sufficiently well worked out to provide the prompt 
action necessary and the Treasurer has had to take the responsibility 
of permitting overdrafts to keep necessary work going. Because of 
the war emergency, this situation has been particularly difficult. 

Tuition receipts for the second semester declined approxi- 
mately $5*300 as compared with a year ago. This is accounted for

largely by declining enrollment in the Graduate School and the 
Stockbridge School. 

The College has received an emergency defense appropria- 
tion of $12,950 for the conduct of the special summer session and 
$1,925 for fire fighting material, blackout equipment, A.R.P. 
supplies, etc. 

Chairman YJhitmore reported that the special committee on 
preparation of the budget for the College had not yet held formal 
meeting but would probably meet in about ten days. He invited the 
Trustees to submit suggestions for the consideration of the 
committee. 

President Baker reported that during the emergency the 
Legislature had authorized State Departments to continue in service 
staff members who had reached the mandatory retirement age of 70. 
He recommended that the Trustees authorize the continuance in ser- 
vice of Professor A. K. Harrison of the Department of -Landscape 
Architecture who would normally retire on May 25, and it was 

VOTED : To authorize the President to arrange for the 

continuation in service of A. K. Harrison, Pro- 
fessor of Landscape Architecture, for the dura- 
tion of the war. 

It was also unanimously 

V OTED : To adopt the following resolution to be in- 
scribed in the records of the Board and copy 
to be sent to Professor Harrison.

"At the close of this College year, Arthur Kenyon 
Harrison will complete thirty-one yeeirs of conscientious 
and devoted service to Massachusetts State College and 
to the Department of Landscape Architecture. He has 
continually exhibited a cax^acity for hard work and 
meticulous attention to detail, always sacrificing

himself in the interests of the physical improvement 
of the College and the spiritual and mental develop- 
ment of the students. In his quiet, unassuming way, 
he has brought to his position a tremendous back- 
ground of knowledge and technical information which 
has contributed very largely to the success of many 
prominent men in the profession. 

"Always sympathetic, understanding, and sincere, 
he has been a character-builder as well as a teacher, 
and he will ever command the affection, admiration, 
and respect of all who have studied and worked with 
him." 

On the recommendation of President Baker, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the President to arrange for the con- 
tinuation of the service of Dr. Alexander S. Cance 
for the duration of the war - this arrangement to 
include the continuation of Dr. Cance in the rank 
of Professor instead of Professor and Head of the 
Department of Economics. 

It was also unanimously 

VOTED : To adopt the following resolution to be inscribed 
in the records of the Board and copy to be sent 
to Dr. Cance. 

Alexander E. Cance 

"Dr. Alexander E. Cance has served the College and 
the Commonwealth faithfully and well for the last 
thirty-four years as teacher and head, first of the 
Department of Agricultural Economics and then of the 
Department of Economics. By his steadfast search for 
truth, clear thinking, and interest in his students 
and colleagues, he lias earned the respect and affection 
of all. His researches ana innovations in the field of 
agricultural economics and nis activity in learned 
societies and on government commissions were outstand- 
ing contributions. His worth has been recognized by 
the Government of the United States and foreign nations, 
The fact that he was the first to introduce courses in 
agricultural marketing and cooperation in American 
colleges typifies the progressive and open-minded 
character of his work. 

"In recognition of his outstanding attainments, 
at the time of his retirement, it is hereby resolved 
that the felicitations and compliments of the Board 
of Trustees of the Massachusetts State College be 
transmitted to Alexander E. Cance and incorporated in 
the appropriate records."

Also upon the recommendation of President Baker, Dr. Cance 

and Dean Machmer, it was

Also on the recommendation of President Baker, Dean

rank only and not in salary but with the understand- 
ing that the advance in salary will be made when 
the college budget allows. 

Also on the recommendation of President Baker, it was 

VOTED: To advance Dr. Charles J. Rohr from Assistant 

Professor of Political Science to Associate Pro- 
fessor of Political Science as of September 1,

President Baker presented request from the Holyoke Central 
Labor Union dated March 23 } 1942 for hearing by the Board on the . 
subject of purchase of electricity for the College, in connection 
with this request, the President reviewed negotiations to de-te 
coverning the purchase of electricity. He described the conference 
at the College between members of the Holyoke and Springfield Cen- 
tral Labor Unions and members of the College Administration - 
March 13, 1942 - at which the matter was first discussed. This con- 
ference was requested by the Holyoke group so that they might pre- 
sent their views concerning purchase of electricity. Apparently 
the Union representatives felt that the College could produce power 
cheaper than it could purchase power from the outside. They also

felt that, v/ith the national need for productive capacity, the 
College should continue the use of its own equipment and not call 
on an outside company for current. They expressed the belief that 
the college equipment could be repaired and put into use for con- 
tinued production of power. 

The President informed the Trustees that at the March 13 
meeting, the College administrative officers had reviewed the events 
leading up to decision to purchase power. 

There was discussion among the Trustees as to why the 
Labor representatives should ask the Trustees for a conference when 
it was the Legislature which had made the decision to purchase. 
It was recalled that the Trustees had requested $7,4-00 for renovatior 
of generating equipment and the Legislature had not made this appro- 
priation; instead it appropriated money for connecting the college 
power lines with those of the Yifestern Massachusetts Electric Company 
and also had appropriated funds for the purchase of current. How- 
ever, the Trustees felt that the Labor group was entitled to have 
all the information available about the purchase and that they, 
the Trustees, would like to cooperate in every way possible. After 
discussion of the matter, it was 

VOTED ; To receive Joseph L. Marion's letter of 
March 23 and to refer his request to the 
Finance Committee with power. 

President Baker described the interest of the Hartford 

Ordnance Division of the War Department in acquiring certain power 

machinery owned by the College for the use of Army sub-contractors. 

The Ordnance Department has inventoried the college stock of 

machinery and recently has requested that the College turn over to

the Boston Wire Stitcher Company of East Greenwich, Rhode Island a 

number 2 Brown & Sharp milling machine now housed at the College 

Power Plant. On a normal marKet this machine would be valued at 

about $400. With today's abnormal market for machinery, it could be 

sold for perhaps $1,000. 

There was discussion as to the best procedure for turning 

this machine over for war use either by sale, lease, or other 

arrangement, and it was 

VOTED : To refer disposition of the number 2 Brown & 

Sharp milling machine to the Finance Committee 
with power. 

President Baker introduced discussion of fall enrollment 

as it will affect the use of college dormitories. He pointed out 

the need for maintaining occupany of the self -liquidating dormitories 

and also of the other college dormitories. At the same time, he 

said the College is interested in seeing that the fraternities are 

not forced out of existence during the emergency. After discussion 

of this matter, it was 

VOTED: To authorize the College Administration to re- 
quire occupancy of the college dormitories by 
Massachusetts State College or Stockbridge stu- 
dents as need may indicate. 

President Baker presented request from the American Jersey 

Cattle Club that the College present the Club with a Jersey bull 

calf born February 10, 1942, number A926. The Club is currently 

campaigning to acquire 1,000 Jersey bull calves of high merit to be 

placed with Jersey herds throughout the country to upgrade the breed

President Baker announced that in addition to the $12,950 
the Governor had allocated for the summer session and the $1,925 
which he had allocated for defense equipment, the Governor had asked 
the legislature for $2,500 for the construction of a wooden frame 
rifle range building at the College. The summer session fund, he 
indicated, would be sufficient so that each teacher would receive 
approximately $100 for a twelve weeks' course. 

The President described the activities of his special 
summer employment committee which is developing summer projects for 
those members of the teaching staff who will not be engaged in the 
summer session. The Trustees indicated their interest in the summer 
activities of the staff and the President said it was hoped that 
every member of the teaching staff would be engaged in a definite 
project during what otherwise would be an extra long vacation period. 

Dr. Hubbard expressed for the Trustees appreciation of the 
Board for the planning and foresight of President Baker and for the 
backing of Governor Saltonstall in making possible continuation of 
the college program during the summer months as an effective contri- 
bution to the Nation 1 s need for trained men and \7oraen. 

The President announced that Major and Mrs. P. J. McNamars 

had presented a beautiful bronze trophy to the College to be 

awarded annually to the R0TC Junior showing greatest proficiency in 

horsemanship. The award will be presented for the first time at the 

annual corps review on May 12. It was 

VOTED : To accept this trophy with appreciation of the 
Board.

and theft. The President indicated that this problem was being 
considered and that a small storage building is to be constructed 
near Butterfield House to hold about 40 bicycles.

And it was 
VOTED : To accept the report of the President as presented. 

Treasurer Hawley reported that the College had received 
an allotment of $2500 from the Governor's Emergency Fund for con- 
struction of a rifle range to be used by the R0TC Corps. The build- 
ing as planned by Mr. Jewett, Superintendent of Buildings, and 
approved by Colonel Young, Professor of Military Science and 
Tactics, would be of wood frame construction measuring 70 by 30 
feet. The Treasurer recommended that the buildin-:: be constructed 



over the cellar hole of the old chemistry laboratory north of 
North College. 

President Baker indicated that the site for the proposed 
rifle range had been investigated by the administration and by the 
Campus Planning Council. It was hoped at first that the building

rRUSTEE 



THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

could be kept out of the center of the Campus but the matter of 

heating finally decided the administration in favor of the location 

north of Worth College. Here the range can be located directly 

over steam pipes and the cost of construction can be held within the 

limits of the allotment of $2500. After discussion, it was 

VOTED ; To authorize the Treasurer to proceed with con- 
struction of a wooden frame rifle range 70 by 30 
feet at a cost not to exceed $2500 for materials, 
labor to be performed by the maintenance emrjloyees 
of the College, and the building to be located on 
the site of the old chemistry laboratory cellar 
hole. 

The Treasurer also reported allotments from the Governor's 
Emergency Fund of $12,950 for the Summer Session, $1,425 for fire 
equipment, and $500 for ARP equipment. 

President Baker reported that Miss Marian Roby Case who 
resides in the town of Vfeston, Massachusetts was interested in pre- 
senting 95 acres of land and 6 buildings to the College if arrange- 
ments could be made for the use of this property as a market garden 
field station of the College. The present site occupied by the 
Waltham Field Station was presented to the College by Miss Cornelia 
Warren and occupies valuable property in the town of Waltham. If 
the Weston property were accepted to be used as a field station, it 
would be advisable to dispose of the Waltham property and move the 
field station operations to the new location. 

The President indicated that considerable thought had been 
given to this suggestion by Professor Ray M. Koon, Head of the 
Station, and by Director Sievers. 

These men report that the property owned by Miss Case in 
the town of Weston would make a fine location for a horticultural

field station, and, in fact, would be considerably better than the 
present station holdings. The property includes 4 residences, a 
meeting hall, and a barn. Some of the land is highly developed 
with ornamental plantings, part is in forest, part in orchard, and 
part is marshy. Miss Case has a sister residing on adjoining 
land, and it is possible this land, too, may be offered to the 
College. Both Mr. Koon and the Director felt that the cost of re- 
locating the station would be more than offset by income derived 
from the sale of the Waltham £>roperty. There was considerable 
discussion of this suggestion and Trustees Griggs, Monahan, and 
Brown, who are familiar with the two properties, expressed them- 
selves in favor of the idea. It was 

VOTED : That the Trustees of Massachusetts State College 
favor the acceptance of the proposed gift of 
land and buildings of Miss Marian Roby Case 
located in the town of Weston, the property to 
be used by the College as a market garden field 
station in the event this property is formally 
offered to the College. 

President Baker reported that the Auditor's Report for 
the period May 31 j 1940 to June 2, 1941 had been received by the 
College and acknowledged. After Commencement, this report will be 
studied and any recommendations made therein will be briefed for 
the consideration of the Trustees. 

Treasurer Hawley reported on the leave of absence of John 
Howard who has been employed as a laborer and farmhand in the 
Grounds Maintenance Service of the College since May 1933. Mr. 
Howard has been a hard and conscientious worker. In November 1941 > 
he was taken seriously ill and has spent most of his time since 
then in the hospital. From December 1, 1941 to the present he has

THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

been carried on sick leave at half pay by the College. 

Mr. Hawley pointed out that there is no specific regula- 
tion governing leaves of absence for illness by college employees, 
but there is an understanding in the administration that a faith- 
ful employee of the labor staff may be carried at half pay for a 
period up to six months. The question in the case of Mr. Howard is 
whether or not the College should extend this period beyond six 
months. Leave at half pay beyond six months is not recommended as 
a general policy, but in view of the fact that Mr. Howard is ex- 
pected to live for a short time only, the Treasurer recommended tha 
he be continued on half pay for an additional period of three 
months . 

Mr. Howard's pay is $117.50 per month and on the half- 
time basis he draws $56.25 per month. 

After discussion, it was 

VOTED; To continue Mr. Howard on half pay for a period 
of three months beyond the six months 1 leave on 
half pay granted by the administration. The 
total period on half pay to be December 1, 1941 
to August 31, 1942. 

Chairman Yt'hitmore presented progress report of the 

special budget committee composed of Trustee Whitmore, chairman, anjd 

Trustees Griggs and Bartlett. He read the sub-committee's report 

of April 23, copies of which had been mailed to Board members, and 

indicated that Treasurer Hawley had developed new forms for the 

budget as suggested in this report. After discussion, it was 

VOTED ; To receive Mr. Whitmore' s report as a report 
of progress of the budget committee. 



Budget 
Committee

TRUSTEE 



THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

The budget committee recommended to the Board that the 

administration be requested to prepare the budget for 1943-44 on the 

new forms. After discussion, it was 

VOTED ; To request the administration to prepare the 
college budget for 1943-44 on the forms pre- 
pared by Treasurer Hawley as a result of the 
budget committee's recommendation of April 23. 

There followed discussion of procedures to be followed in 

developing the budget and Mr. Whitmore offered two different 

suggestions from the budget committee for consideration of the 

Board. 

1. That the Trustees meet during the summer before 
the preparation of the budget to discuss general 
college policies to be followed in the next two 
years. This procedure would guide the administra- 
tion in its preparation of the budget. 

2. To request the college administration to prepare 
a budget as it has in the past and then to meet 
with the Trustees well in advance of the date for 
submitting the budget to the State authorities. 
In this way the Trustees could carefully con- 
sider college policies as implied in the budget 
and make any adjustments desired before the 
budget is submitted to the State. 

Trustee Griggs spoke in favor of suggestion one above and 
Mr. Whitmore spoke in favor of suggestion two above, expressing 
feeling that a policy session would be ineffective without a budget 
to guide the Trustees as to the cost of various policies. 

It was agreed that the budget for the next two years would 
be particularly difficult to prepare and after further discussion, 



it was 



VOTED : To leave with the budget committee and President 
Baker the decision as to procedures to be 
folloYfed in preparation of the college budget.

President Baker reported a gift of $700 from Earle L. 

Morrow of the class of 1930 to be awarded to worthy and deserving 

students. He recommended that the money be held by the Treasurer as 

the John Blackington Fund - payments from it, either of principal or 

interest, to be upon the order of the Dean of the College. It was 

VOTED: To accept the gift of $700 from Earle L. Morrow 

upon the provisions recommended by the President. 

The President reported that arrangements were being made 
with the Massachusetts Committee on Public Safety and the Massa- 
chusetts Department of Public Health for a series of four-day Department of 

Public Health 
schools to be conducted at the College as refresher courses for men | and Safety 

who will act as decontamination consultants in communities through-

accepted in the school. The Massachusetts Committee on Public 
Safety is interested in having a trained man in each community who

President Baker reported on the work of Mr. Grayson's 
committee on summer activities for members of the teaching staff. 
He referred to the faculty meeting of May L4 in which he requested 
each member of the staff to submit his summer plans. 

Trustee Griggs asked if action could be taken in the 
matter of the proposed revision of the By-Laws of the Board of 
Trustees and recommended that a special committee be appointed to 
consider the revision of the By-Laws and make specific recommendation 
to the Full Board. It was

purposes of the Association indicating that several of the New 

England State Colleges were joining this year. After discussion, 

it was 

VOTED: To request the Chairman to appoint a delegate 
from the Board to attend this meeting on 
State travel funds. 

President Baker spoke on the changing status of the 
R.O.T.C. Unit now listed in the College Catalogue as Department of 
Military Science and Tactics. The increase of advanced course 
R.O.T.C. contracts, formation of the Enlisted Reserve Corps, and 
the general expansion of military training and activities have made 
it necessary to decentralize authority. The President recommended 
that for the duration of the war, the work of the department be re- 
organized under four separate departments and the unit changed to 
divisional status. This would involve no increased cost to the 
College. After discussion, it was 

VOTED : To change the status of the Department of 

Military Science and Tactics to Division of 
Military Science and Tactics and to create 
under this division the sejDarate departments 
of Property and Records, Tactics, Weapons, 
and Horsemanship, this change to be 
effective for the duration of the war. 

President Baker raised question as to the use of funds 

contributed by the Alumni and other interested persons for the 

purpose of printing certain publication describing the work of the 

College. Currently, it is desired to print a booklet describing 

the contributions which the College is making to the war effort. 

The President describe! a recent communication from the Commission 

on Administration and Finance indicating that printing on Federal 

1 Trust Funds was to be handled in the same way as printing on 

t ! Fund ; ly, that is it must be placed through the State

The Trustees suggested that the publication on the 
College war effort and other similar matters which the Alumni desire 
printed might well be handled by the Associate Alumni.

Recommendation of the Finance Committee concerning the 
194-3-44 college budget was then presented as follows: It is 
recommended to the Board of Trustees that electricity costs in the 
1943-44 college budget be reduced from $88,490 to $78,305 with the

formerly carried on by Dr. Kightlinger with the financial backing 
of the Federal Government be undertaken at State cost by the 
Experiment Station, within the Station's proposed budget for 1943- 
44 j and that with these revisions the budget be approved as sub- 
mitted by the College Administration in total amount for maintenance 
for 1943 of $1,262,643 and for 1944 of #1,276,829.

Committee be accepted as a report of progress and b the 
committee be instructed and empowered to further revise, with the 
advice of the President, the proposed 1943-44 budget so that the 
total amount of State Funds requested shall not exceed the total 
amount appropriated during the 1941-42 biennium exclusive of any 
special appropriation.

President Baker then presented the following recommenda- 
tion from the Faculty Course of Study Committee: That every stu- 
dent before he is certified to graduation in the undergraduate 
course must have completed one of the following courses; History 5 
or 6, History 25, History 59 or 60, or a course as yet unnumbered 
entitled "America in the World War." In presenting this recommenda- 
tion, the President said it his feelin_ to college student 
should be graduated in these times without at least one sound 
course in American History and institutions. After discussion, 
it was 



VOTED: Beginning with the fall semester of 1942 to 

require that every Massachusetts State College 
undergraduate student complete one of the 
following courses before graduation: History 
5 or 6, History 25, History 59 or 60, or the 
new course entitled "America in the World War." 

President Baker reported briefly on conference with the 
Commission on Administration and Finance on the subject of the 
Auditor's Report for 1940-41* Treasurer Hawley, Trustee Richard 
Saltonstall, and Trustee Whitmore also attended this conference. 
At this time question was raised as to the use of Federal and 
Trust Funds for printing and for out-of-state travel, it being the 
contention of the Commission that expenditures from these funds 
should be handled exactly the same way as expenditures from State 
Funds. 

The President said that this ruling conflicts with 
rulings of the United States Department of Agriculture and that thiis 
question would be submitted for consideration of the Trustees at 
a later date.

pleting college requirements for their undergraduate degrees.

grees to these men. The Secretary read to the Board letter from 
Conrad Hemond, Secretary-Manager of the Holyoke Chamber of Commerce 
and father of one of the seniors called to military service in 
February. This letter was dated May 21, 194-3 &nd addressed to the

THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 



There was lengthy discussion of the desirability of 
recognizing fittingly the military service of these seniors who 
were called out after seven semesters and with only one semester 
yet to complete. The high educational standards of the College 
and the reputation of its earned degree were emphasized in this 
discussion. Dean ^achmer reviewed various opportunities which 
these seniors will have for earning credit toward the college de- 
gree while in the armed services. Work at Officers' Candidate 
Schools, army training schools, and study in the War Institute are 
various means by which college credit can be earned. 

After discussion, the Board then 

VOTED ; To announce the following statement of policy: 
Upon the recommendation of the President of the 
College, the Board of Trustees have awarded 
diplomas honoris causa to the following members 
of the senior class now in the armed services 
of our country. As soon as they have qualified 
by completing the equivalent of the college re- 
quirements they will be awarded diplomas 
studiorum causa.
